Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: (93-96)

The 2009 Clos de la Roche shows the darker, earthier and more ferrous side of Morey. It is a dark, brooding wine packed with fruit. The tannins are more virile and substantial than the Clos St. Denis, which adds to the wine's imposing personality.

This is also intensely floral with subtle spice notes on the relatively cool but ripe nose of primarily red berry fruit and wet stone aromas. There is excellent detail to the tautly muscular and firm yet reasonably refined broad-shouldered flavors that possess superb length. The amount of mid-palate sap is genuinely remarkable and this will permit early accessibility yet it will be capable of aging effortlessly. An impressive effort.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93(+?)

Very good full red. Lower-pitched on the nose than the Clos Saint-Denis, offering minerals, truffle and underbrush. Sweet, rich, pliant and deep; wonderfully creamy in the middle but with a hard outside shell. Doesn't currently offer the nuance of the Clos Saint-Denis. Finishes with fine tannins and excellent length. This will require at least seven or eight years of patience.

Blended between two cuvées. Lively bright crimson. Very sweet and rich and very fruity. Pure and a little more backward and discreet than the Clos St-Denis but with great tension and richness. Should make great old bones, lovely lift. Lots of sweetness.

About This Producer


Jacques Seysses began his career as a winemaker in 1965 as an intern of Gerard Potel at Pousse d'Or. The experience paid off as he gleaned valuable information from the great Burgundian winemakers of the time. In 1967, he struck out on his own with the purchase of Domaine Graillet in Morey St Denis, which he renamed Domaine Dujac. The first vintage, in 1968, proved a complete disaster, but Jacques rebounded quickly, producing one of Burgundy's best wines in 1969. As the domaine gained recognition, the estate and its production grew. Today Dujac stretches over 12 hectares of prime Burgundy real estate in eleven appellations, including eight Grand Cru holdings, and turns out just under 5,000 cases a year.

The winemaking philosophy at Dujac is open-minded, experimental, and successful. A true family affair, winemaking is directed by Jacques and son Jeremy, and Jeremy's wife Diana, an oenologist trained at UC Davis, manages the cellar and laboratory. Since 1986, the domaine has been in "lutte intege," a regime combining organic, biodynamic, and integrated pest management strategies to produce the highest quality fruit. Pinots and Chardonnays from Dujac reflect this approach, garnering high scores and praise from critics year in and year out.

In 2004, the Seysses family began acting as negociants, partnering with local winegrowers in the Cote d'Or to produce wines bearing the Dujac Fils & Pere designation.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
